About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

New Resource for Researchers - The Neuroscience Information Framework

The Neuroscience Information Framework is a dynamic inventory of Web-based neuroscience resources that includes data, materials, and tools. An initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, NIF advances neuroscience research by enabling discovery and access to public research data and tools worldwide through an open source, networked environment.

The NIF project is designed to serve the biomedical research community and is actively looking for resource providers to make their resources accessible through the NIF and offer a variety of methods for registering and making resources searchable through the NIF.

Established in 2004, the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research brings the 16 NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices that support neuroscience research into a collaborative framework to coordinate their ongoing efforts and to plan new cross-cutting initiatives. Working together, representatives from the partner Institutes, Centers, and Offices identify pervasive challenges in neuroscience and any technological barriers to solving them.

Collaborating institutions working on the current version of NIF include University of California, San Diego, California Institute of Technology, George Mason University, Yale University Medical College, and Washington University.

For more information about the NIF or to arrange a training session for you or others in your lab, please email Erin Reid the Washington University NIF contact at erin@brainvis.wustl.edu.
